COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by Mikkeller, Denmark. Recent batch brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium.
The third in the series of single hop IPAs from Mikkeller. Brewed with Cascade, a true American classic hop type. This hop is less powerful than the ones used in the previous two single hop IPAs - creating a great balance with the beers other aspects.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (cascade) and yeast.

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Pours a straw yellow-orange with thick off-white head. Aroma very nice of all citrus hops (big surprise, huh?), slight malt, grass, and grapefruit strong. Flavor matches, but just doesn’t have the edge and complexity I was hoping for. Drinkable, but not worth the price with so many better options available for cheaper.

Tap at Le Šenk, Bratislava. Hazy orange amber color with huge off-white head. Citrus, floral hoppy aroma. Nice citrus, floral hoppy bitter taste with solid malty base. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

Idiosynkrasie (3757) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy, dark amber colour with huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Herbal, piney and slightly resinous hoppy aroma, a touch of forest honey, rosemary. Taste is bitter hoppy, sweet-ish malty, herbal (rosemary), piney, notes of pineapple, orange, orange zest; dry and still slightly fruity finish ends solely dry and minimally chalky. Overall harmonical, could be interesting to use it as stock for a roast lamb sauce in cooking.

If you imagine that IPA is not my favourite style this beer is really excellent. Cereals and corn are amongst the main tastes of this lovely beer.

tricksta_p (1070) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Hoppy aroma of malt, pine, tropical fruits, some caramel. Flavour is malty and hoppy, leading to a dry bitter finish. A bit less remarkable than the other beers in this series, but quite tasty anyway.
